How to drive long distance with a death flu and Kids

IMG_4092

I have had the most jam packed month. We moved house, we had the Moby’s Wedding fair which was a lot of preparation. Iggy had school holidays and had hand foot and mouth disease right in the middle of moving house. I drove to Melbourne for a trade fair, and came back in a day because I had to host a dreamcatcher work shop at the very awesome Dtll Workshops, and then got the flu, you know like the painful aches and you feel like death, and then I had another workshop to host and I thought I was getting better, but I got super dizzy and sick and managed to get through the workshop, but I felt terrible, and I had to drive to Lennox Head the next day so I could make it to my best friends daughters party.

Decorating with Plants

983509-1_lp

I am trying VERY hard to keep plants alive in our house. And when I say ‘I’, I actually mean Steve my husband. Because I seriously suck hardcore at keep plants alive. I want them everywhere but I don’t want to have to look after them. I already look after a husband, two kids and a mentally unstable giant beast dog. So we try to keep plants around that are a little lower maintenance. I’ve heard air plants are the way to go. And of course succulents, but even those I seem to kill. (more…)

I am recovering from a sinus infection that feels like my brain has swollen too much and is pushing my eyeballs out of my face. Its been seriously hellish so I have taken a bit of a break. I was away while sick, and didn’t get to fully appreciate the time away, but I will delve into that adventure soon, but one thing that seriously keeps me sane while I recover from what feels like my face imploding, is the beautiful Instagram accounts and blogs I follow. Seriously, it’s so inspiring seeing how others do life. (more…)

So I had this awesome idea a couple weeks ago. You see every year I head to Melbourne for the Trade fairs to buy up for the shop and find some new suppliers. Its exhausting, and awesome at the same time, and I usually fly down for a week and go wild buying up for the rest of the year. This year some things are chainging for Little Paper Lane and so I am all over the place with my brain on how I am approaching my buying. I have also been asked to be apart of DTLL Workshops creative team, and I was hosting a workshop on the 1st of December, so I wasnt going to be staying at trade fairs for long this year. (more…)

I love seeing how other store owners create their spaces. I know how much work goes into a retail space and when you see that a shop has taken the time to create amazing window displays or beautiful visual merchandising, it always give me a warm fuzzy feeling and really inspires me with my own shop.
